The public is exposed to diverse, often conflicting views of public problems and policy solutions to those problems. The media, special interest groups, researchers, family, and friends espouse views on what the government or nonprofits ought to do to fix social problems or better societal outcomes. This course builds upon the entire public policy curriculum (content and research methods courses) to systematically examine a range of policy options that address these underlying problems. The overarching objective of this course is for each student to develop and write a capstone that will be orally presented in class. The capstone topic will be tailored to the policy interests of the students. Successful completion of this course is necessary to meet the University of Kentucky Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR).

Prereq: This course will be open only to public policy majors who are in the last year of the program and have completed CIS 110 /WRD 110  or CIS 111 /WRD 111  or equivalent course.
